    I have the DPD app and that is telling me a parcel was sent via DPD Deutchland yesterday (12/8) and should be delivered today 13/8. No tracking email has been sent I just checked the app on the off chance!

    Would appear mine landed at Entoyment yesterday - I was out for most the day so a quick trip down the road later today.
    Thanks for the heads up Steve.

    No sign of anything in Notts yet, although the local Militia have been alerted to look out for any suspicious craters in the landscape.

    My Martians are also taking a trip to the Netherlands. But I have a tracking email at last!

    Yay - tracking number from Ares received - but apparently the DPD tracking system is not currently available so I don't know how close the Martians are

    Correction - goods are "in transit"

    DPD has informed me that Thursday will be the day of Martians attack on Prague.

    What kept you guys? We had our first games last night, where the tripods flattened everything in sight and flamed a few planes. Need to work on tactics......

    Martians have landed One casualty currently in sickbay, (MkII Scarab had a broken neck from a squabble with one of his comrades whilst on the long trip from Mars - repairs are under way). Otherwise very happy

    Pics on T & T thread.

    Got home from work around 1200 and 10 mins later a very nice DPD van outside with a parcel, huzzar, tripods have invaded Bristol.

    However upon looking inside I found... no rounds in the chamber , no rounds in the ...... ooops wrong IA.

    I found one dead Scarab, snapped off at the neck and for the life of me I cannot find the Invasion pack Bomb card or additional objective markers, any pointers chaps ?

    Also what are these Swords and Sorcery cards doing on the components list ?

    Lastly my Locust has in fact 6 action cards, though one is a blank, is this correct ?

    Should come with 4 card sheets with objectives, smoke templates and smoke rulers. Good spot on the bomb card - I missed this in my component check and now find my card has gone AWOL. Email to Ares time.

    Crossover for one of Ares other games presumably (I'll see your fiery demon and raise you a feckin' big Martian.)

    All the Tripods have a blank card, the purpose of which I know not. We came across this last night when we played, and in true wargaming fashion ignored it. Anyone else have any clue?

    I think the idea of the blank action card is so that the Martian pilot can bluff the Humies - it also gets a mention in the Bombing rules but I have yet to read them thoroughly to find out why !

    When play-testing, and playing the Martian side, I usually placed my Blank Token when finished planning at the start of the turn. This was just to let Human players know I was ready to go. Also, in the Tripos vs Tripod rules, IIRC, you use the Blank card as a bluff, when you don't wish to use an action. We'll find other uses for it, I'm sure.
